The Galácticos era at world-famous football club Real Madrid saw the club’s management pursue the expensive tactic of signing as many all-star football players as possible to make a super-team. Unfortunately, the club didn’t bag quite as many trophies as such a collection might have expected. It seems that, despite having the best available resource, putting that resource to work to achieve results was no easy feat. For businesses in the ICO space, this story may hit a little too close to home. Despite ICOs raising $291 million in January 2019 alone, bringing the total raised since 2014 to somewhere over $34 billion, recent research has shown that over half of the companies who conduct them fail within four months The post What can ICO projects learn from football’s mistakes? appeared first on Coin Rivet.

14:54 CryptoCoinsNews.comToxic ICO Taxes: Thailand Stock Chief Slams Regulators for Crippling Crypto-Friendly Startups

By CCN.com: Thai startups raising funds by issuing digitized equities/stocks pay more taxes than an average business, according to Prinn Panitchpakdi. The governor of the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) said initial coin offering (ICO) startups typically pay 7 percent in value-added (VAT) and a 20 percent in corporate tax. At the same time, the Thai tax authorities have exempted technology giants like Facebook, Google, and Line from paying VAT. Panitchpakdi believed that such an unleveled field was choking Thailand’s startup ecosystem, for they no longer could experiment freely under a stiffer regulatory and tax framework. “In Singapore, such a

We began the second quarter of 2019 with a spring of hope.   April was exciting, at first. The blockchain industry has been in somewhat of the slumber for what seemed like an eternity. Besides the brutal October of 2018, when it felt as if the whole crypto market was melting, we have been on a slow and consistent decline since January 2018. So, naturally, it felt like a breath of fresh air when the value of Bitcoin climbed almost twenty-two percent in little more than twenty-four hours. We saw some signs saying it was, perhaps, time for the next bull run. Also, May has been refreshingly pleasant with recent growth in the BTC price.

23rd April 2019 – The Panxora Group, a cryptocurrency consortium, today announces the launch of its ICO Treasury Management Service (TMS). The TMS helps founders manage the capital raised through Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) to ensure that it is preserved from the volatility of cryptocurrency and can support business growth. Recent research has shown that over half of ICOs fail within four months of their launch, often due to financial mismanagement. For young crypto companies, managing ICO capital is a daunting task. Keeping it in crypto exposes it to volatility and risks loss, while converting it immediately to fiat could mean a missed opportunity to take advantage of a rising crypto market.

Since July, Thailand and its Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) have voiced their intent to legalize the local initial coin offering (ICO) market and open it to startups. On Dec. 1, 2018, however, Cointelegraph reported that the Thai SEC declared Thai-related security token offerings (STOs) in international markets to be illegal and said that it will take appropriate legal action against companies that attempt to distribute STOs created in Thailand to overseas markets. The government’s initial stance toward the approval of STOs in the local market contradicted the Thai SEC’s plans to legalize ICOs and allow companies to raise capital from investors in the public market.
